Costa Rica, Puntarenas Province, Pavones, Costa Rica
  • $225,000


This “walk to the surf” 2 bedroom home has many fruit trees, plants and room for growth. A few great plants on the grounds include cinnamon and turmeric. There is room to create a permaculture lifestyle. The house is made of concrete and wood. You can build additional cabinas or a second home as there is plenty room on this 2731 square meters / 0.67 acre lot.

The Property

The home sits in the maritime zone (zona maritima). Concession is in process and the paperwork at the muni is up to date. The current corporation owns the right of use for over 20  years. The large yard is zoned for residential, single family home and low density cabins.

Surf Paradise in Pilon

This Pilon Surf Home is a true piece of paradise in one of the most beautiful parts of Costa Rica. From the yard, you can check the surf at Pilon’s point break, feel the wind for a sailing or kite session. There are two additional breaks you can surf right in front; Middles and Beginner’s Bay.

Quaint Fishing Village

Sitting on the shore are a couple families of fishermen that you can buy fresh dorado (mahi mahi), tuna, snook (robalo) or shrimp (when in season). Also these same fishermen would be glad to take you out for an adventure.

This is the Life

You are literally walking distance to the beach and believe me your coffee will still be hot when your feet reach the sand. This is a true opportunity to embrace the surf and beach lifestyle in Pilon beach. It is a hidden area of Pavones.

More About the Area

Known as a surfer’s haven, Pavones is a small community located along the southern Pacific Coast. Surrounded by jungle and home to multiple world class surf breaks. The property is only a short walk to Pilon, which rivals the world’s 2nd longest left wave in the world, Pavones and Costa Rica’s best surf spot which is right down the road.

World Class Sportfishing

We are also known for some of the world’s best big-game fishing where you can catch giant 100lbs tuna on a daily basis. Other popular fish species sought by fishermen in the area are Mahi-Mahi, Snapper, Sailfish, Swordfish and Wahoo!

Incredible Wildlife

The wildlife is also abundant and you will get to see exotic creatures like Scarlett Macaws, Toucans, Aracaris, Sloths, Jaguarundis, Coatis and much more. The property has a walking trail that reaches the Rio Claro River where you can enjoy the cool waters of this magnificent river, usually all to yourself.


Pavones isn’t just another Costa Rica surfer town – this region is home to some of the best, longest wave in the world. This remote village can be a challenge to get to, but as the second longest left behind Chicama, Peru, the travels may be worth it. When a south southwest swell comes in, the surf here is fast, intense and the ride can last up to 2 minutes. No joke, Red Bull filmed Robby Naish surfing a wave for 2 minutes 15 seconds and going over 1 km!
